Paul is on tour in Europe full details here.


  1. I went to see the concert at the Mousonturm in Frankfurt last evening. I really like the new CD. Unfortunately, my friend and I were both incredibly disappointed in the dreadful sound mix that was bungled by whomever was on the sound board. It was the worst mixing and sound work I have ever had the misfortune to hear. We stayed through the concert but couldn’t stand to hear such poor sound so left before the encores. We love the music, and it is a shame that it was presented so poorly. I hope your entire tour is not like that, otherwise…

  2. Hi Tom, we told Mr Banks the problem after the show. He told us: Always stand were the sound guys are situated! And I can tell you: The sound in Cologne was perfect! And I did not really change my position. Just see another show, there are stil some left

  12. …All that we see or seem
    Is but a dream within a dream.
    I stand amid the roar
    Of a surf-tormented shore,
    And I hold within my hand
    Grains of the golden sand…

    Edgar Allan Poe

    From St. Petersburg with gratefully.

  14. Hi
    I attended your show in Paris (alhambra).
    Very magic moment.
    Your musical universe is so authentic and unique.

    you’re still invited to eat a risotto at home by the way.

    Oh one questio : what’s between your Xotic EP Bosster and your holy grail on stage ?

    Take care and come back to Paris anytime, you’ll be our skyscraper ! Don’t have much of these in France ^^.

  16. Are there/could there be T shirts? I’d also love an alternate “everybody on my Clit like…” & would buy two of each!

  22. Hey Paul, none of the posh English lit PhDs at my university seem to actually know what the hell poetry is, but I often feel that you do. Please know that there’re people out there who truly dig your lyrics. The grammar, the intertext, the irony.
    Stay Flynn.
